London: A seven-year-old schoolgirl may have accidentally found the ‘Excalibur’.
Mathilda Jones was recently paddling in Dozmary Pool in Cornwall when she saw something glint in the water. He father Paul assumed it was bit of old fencing. But when he reached down he realised it was a four-foot sword, metro.co.uk reported.
According to the legend of King Arthur, the one who holds the Excalibur is the true king or queen of Britain.
The sword was given to him by the mythical ‘Lady of the Lake’, bringing him good fortune and incredible combat skills. After he lost the sword in the Battle of Camlann, Arthur was mortally injured and upon his death a knight hurled it into the lake. However before it touched the surface a women’s hand reached out of the water to grasp it. The ‘Lady of the Lake’ is said to have held the sword below Dozmary Pool, until the next person worthy of the throne finds it.
